Even the San Antonio Spurs' Beer Pairing is Perfect


When you think beer pairings, you think IPA's and spicy food, stouts and chocolate, or blonde ales and nutty cheeses. You wouldn't think to pair a beer with your favorite NBA team, but Thrillest did, and their beer paring selection for the San Antonio Spurs is so beyond perfect.  What is it? Freetail Brewing Co's Born to Be Mild, because obviously.

  • Thrillest

Here's what Thrillest had to say about their choice: 

Has there ever been a beer that fit an NBA team so perfectly? Only if there was also a beer called We Are Never Not Competing For A Championship. The beer is an English Mild currently on tap at Freetail. And this team is filled with nothing but mild personalities that also happen to be exceptionally talented. Kawhi Leonard, Duncan, and Parker could all play basketball in a library and no one would tell them to shush. They'll probably win it all again.
